President Obama and Congress are struggling to make progress on immigration reform as a surge of children are arriving at the U.S. border, many on their own, after long journeys from Central America.

This week we'll tackle a discussion of the economic and political causes of this mass migration—and the impacts on New Mexico communities seeing an influx of migrants.

We'd like to hear from you! Email callinshow@kunm.org, post your comments online or via Twitter @KUNMNews, or call in live during the show.
